TOMMY KETTERHAGEN MEMORIAL ROAD RACE & RIDE
The first road race of 2018 is just around the corner on January 20th!
Once called the "Oatmeal Road Race" this year the race is dedicated to Tommy Ketterhagen and sponsored by Holland Racing and presented by our very own sponsor, Brad Houston Law. So you know this is for a GREAT cause!
If you want to race for the club, they still have spots open in all races except the Cat 4/5 race.
